obama of who is trying to steer a middle course. i like to see him steer a little bit more, frankly, even progressive to the progressive side, but compared to where romney is, i think that we have such a clear choice. it looks like the american pink building so as well. basically, more and more people have come to see how corrupted the american political system is, how dysfunctional wall street is, how on equal our society is and how we are not getting out of this trap until we address these issues much more fundamentally than we have. whether we are going to do that or not, i do not know, but the events over the last year showed that we need to. tavis: you reference present obama and governor romney. tomorrow night, wednesday, the first of these four debates, three between mr. romney and mr. obama. tomorrow is the first that we will see them on the same stage. in advance of that debate tomorrow night, yesterday in "the wall street journal" mr. romney had a piece. the piece was titled "a new course for the middle east," but he raises some domestic issues, .

. other polls out show president obama and romney locked in a tight fight. according to the nbc news/"wall street journal"/marist poll, president obama has a slight lead in nevada and north carolina but basically within the margin of error. and in virginia, a new poll from suffolk university/nbc 12 puts obama slightly ahead of romney, also within the margin of error. so, how can romney turn it around? it may not be easy. some people within this romney campaign have concluded he's not actually a very good politician. here's what one romney official explained to politico. he said -- now romney's former rival newt gingrich doesn't go quite that far, but he says that romney needs to reform his thinking. >> i think they're only now beginning to come to grips with the general election. they had a very -- >> scary -- >> they had a very successful primary strategy. in a primary you can raise enough money to build a motor boat and drive to where you want to get to in the primary. in the general election you're like a sail boat. the system is so much bigger than you. >> it is hard to go from a

of the first presidential debate between governor romney of massachusetts and president obama. you see both men being greeted by their wives on stage. even this portion of the debate is negotiated ahead of time by the campaigns in terms of which members of their family will be joining them on stage. this is, these these are negotiated down to this level of detail. in terms of how the overall debate unfolded, i personally do not know who won this debate. i do feel that we saw this debate format die a very painful death on camera tonight. the contrast between the candidates was stylistic as much as substantive. president obama i think calm and basically explanatory tonight. governor romney, more hyper, and i don't mean that in a negative way, just sort of more amped, more assertive. and that manifests in a way that the debate format was just dismantled. the format and i think the moderator, with all due respect to mr. lehrer dismantled. this is one of those debates, you could predict the score more by time of possession in terms of who was speaking more. then you could by any other individual pla

>>> governor romney lives to fight another day. many of president obama's key supporters voicing their disappointment today that he did not take on governor romney when he had an opportunity. here's some of the headlines. in fact, the "los angeles times" says, quote, obama fans are shocked by mitt romney's dominance in debate. "the chicago tribune" said for obama words not said spoke the loude loudest. it said obama hit with a left hook on tv and online. the president is hitted to wisconsin, but not before taking one last parting shot a a fiery rally in denver not too long ago. >> when i got onto the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. it couldn't have been mitt romney, because the real mitt romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts to pay for the wealthy. the fellow on stage last night said he didn't know anything about that. >> around the same time governor romney was making a surprise appearance at the conservative political action conference, cpac in denver before heading to virginia for an

"hannity" starts right here, right now. tonight the white house is engulfed in a scandal as there's shocking new evidence proving that you the american people were lied to by the president, by the secretary of state, and other senior members of the obama administration. now, fox news can in fact confirm that within 24 hours of the assault on the banghazi consulate the obama administration in fact knew with certainty that that was indeed a terrorist attack. now two sources also tell fox that u.s. intelligence officials were even aware that the assault was coordinated by al-qaeda-affiliated operatives. all of this was verified on september 12th less than a day embassy stevens, two navy seals, and one other american were assassinated. rather than tell the truth, and acknowledge that the al-qaeda link existed, admit that the president's triumphant killing of bin laden was by no means marking the end of international terrorism,
against president obama. with 37 days until the election, we go on the campaign trail with paul ryan. >> this is a high stakes election. we will give the country a very clear choice. >> chris: and we sit down for an exclusive interview in which we discuss the economy, the new focus on national security and growing criticism of the romney campaign. paul ryan only on "fox news sunday." then, we will preview wednesday's first obama/romney debate and ask our sunday panel what each candidate needs to do to win the first face-off. and our power player of the week has spent almost half his life telling the inside story of how a president rose and fell from power. all right now on "fox news sunday." and hello again from fox news in washington. with just five weeks until election day and new polls showing president obama leading in key swing states, the presidential debates may be mitt romney's last best chance to turn this race around. and so we wanted to find out what the romney/ryan plan is when they face off against obama and biden. we caught up with running mate paul ryan saturday in new
presidente, una de sus primeras decisiones es derogar la reforma de salud de obama . >> la respuesta aceptada no es que el gobierno federal se apodere de la asitencia sanitaria y que de mandatos, decirle a un médico que puede tener, no es así, el mercado privado siempre es ejor . >> cuando el gobernador mitt romney dice que lo reemplazará con algo, que no puede detallar con algo, razón por la cuál montó el sistema, no hay mejor manera que hacerle frente a los padecimientos, me recuerda que dice que va a cerrar deducciones en su plan fiscal ,así el ova a pagar, pero no sabemos detalles. > > aunque ambos dicen estar a favor de la educación, tiene filosofias diferentes de cuanto educar a los estadounidenses. >> yo creo que le importa la edu, pero cuando le dice a un estudiante que debes pedir dinero prestado a los padres para estudiar, indica el grado donde gente como yo ,como michelle obama, una mujer que etsudia en la universidad de denver no se pueden dar ese lujo ,nos tenemos que cersiorar,. >> al señor presidente, tiene derecho a tu propio avión, pero no a tus derechos, no reduci

obama not able to resist since then referring to big bird yesterday and today, and here's what he said. >> for all of you moms and kids out there, don't worry, somebody's finally getting tough on big bird. [cheers and applause] rounding him up. elmo's got to watch out too. governor romney plans to let wall street run wild, but he's bringing the hammer down on "sesame street," it makes sense. lou: the president was trying to make a joke, but, mr. president, wait a minute. turns out big bird is deserving of considerable public attention. upon further investigation, it appears the last thing the president should be doing is to minimize what's happening to the taxpayer money because of big bird, all his friends like elmo and jim lehrer. the president should be paying attention to the count to help him with the numbers, and the numbers are troubling. on a day in which the congressional budget office announced the 2012 budget deficit came in at $11 trillion for a fourth straight year, turns out our out of control spending includes roughly $450 million given every year to the corporation for
during the obama administration. rick, romney may have been running for president forever, but obama has been president for almost -- you know, for 3 1/2 years. >> and it seems forever. >> only to some of us. >> we're not going get the median incomes up until income growth up. simplification has been to do be done. obama takes no interest in this. rick, when was the last time you even heard president obama talk about growth? >> let me actually switch -- let me switch to mark now. mark, what do you think of the obama tax plan? >> well, look, i don't know if obama has really a tax plan, but i don't think the problem is taxes here. i think the problem is people don't have an income. the reason they don't have an income, they don't have jobs. we have a demand problem in the economy, not a tax problem. cutting taxes, if you have no income, does not make any difference. we need to stimulate demand. how can we stimulate demand? we can do it in a variety of ways, but cutting taxes is not going to get us where we want to go. >> victoria, the message of mitt romney, and a lot of people, is if you

down by 20% as well, all rates come down. >> president obama was just as surprised. >> well, for 18 months he's been running on this tax plan. and now, five weeks before the election, he's saying that his big, bold idea is never mind. >> but the etch a sketching did not stop there. governor romney who once believed financial regulation was hurting the economy -- >> dodd frank it's called, has not helped enterprise get going, it's slowed it down. >> now seems to be a supporter of wall street regulation. >> want to repeal dodd/frank? >> and replace it. we're not going to get rid of regulation. some parts of dodd/frank that make all of the sense in the world. >> and back in june, romney mocked the president's crazy ideas about needing more teachers for the nation's classrooms. >> he says we need more firemen, more policemen, more teachers. did he not get the mess naj wisconsin? the american people did. >> last night romney became a crusader for -- wait for it -- teachers. >> i love great schools. massachusetts, our schools are ranged number one of all 50 states. and the key to great sc

with obama. what do you do? mitt does not have a rose garden. >> charles, you write that in the wake of what is happening in the middle east, romney's "un willingness to go big is simply astonishing." >> it was a great opening this week, with embassies of flame, the ambassador killed, writes -- riots -- that is a collapse of the four-year policy on the middle east. rather than make a serious speech connecting the dots and talking about exactly that, the collapse of the policy or the result of a naive approach to tyrants in the region, he does want to drive-by shot, which was accurate, but it was only one, and then he gives a speech to the clinton global initiative about reforming foreign aid, for god's sake. that is a huge opportunity missed. the core problem is this un willingness to go large and bait and tackle the big issues, which if he did, he could win, but he seems reluctant to do it. >> nina? >> i will not take on charles on the merits of these arguments, although i agree that a major foreign policy speech -- i don't think it would have changed things, but it would make him look like
're definitely looking out for you. >> sean: tonight welcome to obama's america. >> how did he give you a phone? >> you sign up. you're on social security, you're on low-income, disability. >> free obama phones, free obama money. sounds like change that everybody can believe in. >> he's president, you know. he gave us a phone. romney sucks. >> sean: that's not the only outrageous video we've uncovered tonight. ann coulter got "the view" treatment this morning. tonight she squares off with juan williams. >> seen these new ads where mitt romney says he's a brand of coal country? >> it's attack my livelihood. >> plus, we'll tell you which of these two ads are actually work. and a representative from the obama campaign is here live with 40 days to go before this election.

seat. gregg: happy to be here. jenna: i'm jenna lee. jon: i'm jon scott. president obama and mitt romney go hea head-to-head in denver making strong arguments on how they would if i can the question. governor romney says he would bring relief to the middle class. >> i don't have a $5 trillion tax cut. i don't have a tax cut that you're talking about. we should provide relief to the people in the mid class. high income people are doing just fine in this income, they'll do fine whether you're president or i am. the people having a hard time right now are middle income americans. under the president's policy middle income americans have been buried, they are being crushed. jon: mr. obama with this argument. >> the fact is that if you are loring the rates you describe, governor, then it is not possible to come up with enough deductions and loopholes that only affect high income individuals to avoid either raising the deficit or burden evening the middle class, it's math, it's arithmetic. jon: today it's back to the campaign trail. mr. obama in denver, and then to wisconsin. governor r
and how barack obama and mitt romney plan to tackle these key american challenges. before we get to that, here's a look at some of the top stories making news today. >>> a desperate search for two tennessee children today, their home burned down a week ago but police say still no trace of the children. suzannesan candiotti is joining. >> reporter: at this hour, state investigators are using teams of people using dogs to search a wider area of the woods on both sides of the road around the house that was insin rated. with absolutely no physical evidence that the children were home when their grand charparen died in that fire, investigators are doing all they can to find those children. investigator have found no sign of 9-year-old chloe and 7-year-old gauge daniel. no signing the youngsters were there and so far no evidence they weren't when an inferno swept through the home where they lived with their grandparents. friends an family don't understand and neither does anyone else. >> i think something's very fishy. >> the more you find out the more questions you have. >> reporter: helicopt
to the white house. you will hear from barack obama like you have never heard from him before. a video has been uncovered from a campaign event in 2007 of then candidate obama, speaking before an audience of african-american ministers, including the reverend jeremiah wright. the tape was obtained exclusively by the daily caller web site. but you are about to see it right here on "hannity" for first time. it contains some of the most divisive class warfare and racially charged rhetoric ever used by barack obama. portions of the nearly 40-minute speech can be found online in an edited video, shot by the daily press newspaper in hampton, virginia. however, that version runs only about 9 minutes and omits the most inflammatory comments. it also does not include any references to reverend wright. in addition, it was covered by other mediautelets, including the associated press and local television stations. but the most outrageous comments were completely ignored, further proof that the mainstream media has been in the pocket of barack obama since he day he arrived on the national stage. let's take
later. it was a robust debate, in the team jerseys, governor rom flee in the reds tie, president obama in the blue. romney landing a number of job jabs on everything from debt and jobs and the economy to health care, to his green energy program, saying, americans, republican and democrat need leadership and he's prepared to provide it. the president, keeping his cool, said to be a challenge for him tonight, saying that leadership requires more than lofty goals trequires specifics and he didn't hear them from the governor. it was interesting to see mitt romney looking mostly over at president obama when he was making his point and president obama choosing to look at jim lehrer or looking down. what message do the viewers pick up on that? president obama looking directly into the camera on the subject of obamacare, wanting to communicate directly to the viewers at home, past the moderator. there was mostly respectful sparring in a robust debate. the moderator, jim lehrers was not nrsly in control, but not ineffective. this is the first time we have seen the candidates go back and forth.
is a very good debater. he's practiced and practiced and practiced and practiced. >> the moderator and obama are going to come after him. >> the big questions, can romney reset his campaign with a strong debate? or was early voting under way -- >> president obama. >> is it too late for a turnaround? >> four years from his last debate. >> you're wrong. >> will be president obama be rusty? we'll ask our headliners. new jersey governor chris christie and the president's senior adviser david plouffe. and our powerhouse roundtable. squaring off, haley barbour and howard dean. plus, matthew dowd, donna brazile and maggie haberman of politico. >>> hello again. we're heading into the home stretch of this campaign. just 37 days before the final votes. with all eyes on this week's first debate. the candidacy are hunkering down in debate camp. where the race stands. what to expect wednesday? white house adviser david plouffe standing by for the president. but let's begin with the romney camp, new jersey governor chris christie. good morning. >> good morning, george. >> since the convention, romney has

's debate. more importantly, this is a stage where president obama and governor mitt romney will hopefully define their positions on the key domestic issues facing our nation. that's what's on the agenda for this debate tonight; jobs, the economy, health care. but first, a new distraction for the obama campaign during a critical week. it comes in the form of a video released by "the daily caller" of then-presidential candidate barack obama back in 2007. in it he speaks to a group mostly made up of black pastors. his speech got some coverage at the time he delivered it, but his prepared remarks did not include some of the off-the-cuff, off-prompter moments, if you will, alluding to alleged racism to hurricane katrina and spending decisions made by our elected leaders. our chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel is live in washington with more. mike? >> reporter: hi, megyn. the tone has attracted some attention with then-candidate obama sounding different as he spoke to a large group of african-american religious leaders in virginia. one major topic was mr. obama trying to contrast th

trailing. according to a new fox news poll, president obama leads romney by five points among likely voters nationwide. 48% to 43%. catch that, the fox poll. highly significant there. let's go right now to howard on this question. it looks to me like this divorce papers are pretty much out there right now. all that you hear now is romney doesn't really want to be stuck in that little basement where they cut medicare. >> well, mitt romney was on the campaign trail today saying, i have a little secret, i'm going to win pennsylvania. okay. he's not going to win pennsylvania. >> it's the oldest state in the union. >> he's not going to win pennsylvania with paul ryan's profile on medicare or budget cutting or anything else. so if mitt romney is serious about making a play in pennsylvania, that just underscores how inconvenient paul ryan has become. look, mitt romney did not pick paul ryan because of paul ryan's medicare or budget programs. he picked paul ryan because of his youthfulness, because of the cultural appeal, because of what paul ryan himself calls the deer hunter catholic that he is,
in history. host:next is ann, a president obama supporter. caller: good morning. i think exactly the opposite. i think mitt romney looked almost manic and his appearance. i have never seen him flailing his arms around. he told so many lies. he completely turned around all of the things he has been running on the for the past 18 months. he even through the tax policy away. he just changed everything. it was really unbelievable. i think many people looked at him being more aggressive. that is what they were rewarding. once people started paying attention to exactly why he said, they would see that his -- that he told so many lies and distorted what he was trying to say. i think the president look very presidential. he was not aggressive. he explained exactly what he wanted to say. i thought the whole purpose of the debate was for each one to explain what their policy was. romney just completely changed. that is what was so -- i guess it is not so surprising, because that is what he has done is flip-floping. i hope the president would get an ad out or they show what he has been saying and what h

political news this hour. as previously uncirculated or not widely circulated tape of president obama on the one side and vice presidential nominee paul ryan on the other side have both been posted online tonight in typical, late in the campaign, october surprise, boy do we have a bomb shell fashion. first on the right at the tucker carlson website, the right wing sirens blaring excitement tonight is for the same kind of tape they have tried to make bomb shells out of the last three times we have gone through this in the election cycle. over and over and over again, the right has tried to make huge news not out of something president obama has done as president but out after a big unveiling, a big, giant, coordinated round of attention for something from president obama's supposedly secret past. this spring it was the glen beck website dousing themselves in gasoline and pulling the fire alarm over video of president obama speaking as a law student at harvard. video at a press conference where obama says nothing news worthy. that was explosive tape, not at all. last month it was the dr
mitt romney has hammered president obama about job growth. elect me, i can turn the economy around. but today the rationale for his entire campaign is crumbling. the new job numbers are out and unemployment has dropped to 7.8%. under 8% for the first time since president obama first came into office. that's progress on jobs and that's good for america. but it's absolutely demolishes a favorite romney talking point. >> three years later, unemployment is still above 8%. >> we've gone 41 months with unemployment above 8%. >> we've had 42 straight months with unemployment above 8%. >> still 8% with over 43 straight months. >> today, that talking point disintegrated and president obama has a strong record to campaign on. >> this morning we found out that the unemployment rate has fallen to the lowest level since i took office. but today's news certainly is not an excuse to try to talk down the economy to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. >> now, governor romney issued a statement today saying, quote, this is not what a rea
on the jobs record, but here is the truth. president obama has the longest stretch of manufacturing job gains -- get this wait for it -- in almost two decades. since 2000 when president bush came into office, the manufacturing sector went into a steep slide, but since 2010, that slide has turned around. the president has record on manufacturing jobs since president clinton. and he noted as much during his dnc speech. >> and after a decade of decline, this country created over half a million manufacturing jobs in the last two and a half years. >> jennifer: now in polititfacts rated that statement by president clinton as true. mitt romney's own plan would cost 800,000 u.s. jobs according to the study for american progress. the corporate tax cuts would cost the u.s., according to that study, nearly $1 trillion. all right. now the third debate topic, and the third myth that is -- we are debunking here health you will hear this over and over again. you have heard it. the memo reads $716 billion will be raided from medicare to pay for obamacare. now this is the same raidin
